Last weekend was a trying time for many in the Sylmar and Corona areas with fires raging on all sides, and many losing homes to the wild fires. Los Angeles Times pressman Bill Conover and his wife Joann were two of the fortunate ones that found their home intact, when allowed back into their neighborhood late Sunday night.
But pressman Glen Marcione and his family were not so fortunate as their mobile home was lost to the fire that took out five hundred of the six hundred units in their park. Glen was at the Times producing the Saturday edition when he was called to return home. I do not have many details at this time regarding this terrible event, but Glen and his family are staying with fellow pressman Jeff Forbes, until a suitable residence is located.
